One of the things I was super excited about when we painted our bedroom gray was that we would be able to have Christmas bedding. Seriously. Up until this spring our bedroom had blue and yellow wallpaper and that is just not a good combo with red.
Once I I had a neutral backdrop to work with I started gathering Christmas sheets and pillows. I found red checkered sheets (Dale says it’s like sleeping in a bread basket) and also red sheets with white snowflakes. (As an aside . . . can I just say how hard it is to find Christmas sheets that aren’t flannel?!? I get too hot for flannel so it’s not an option for me and I can’t be the only one who prefers percale. Don’t people in Florida want Christmas sheets?) I found red and white striped ticking to cover our big square euro pillows. But the one thing I couldn’t find was shams for our regular sized pillows.
Enter the Cricut.
I bought plain white pillow covers with pom poms on Amazon and then came up with a design for them. I went through a few iterations but finally settled on this Merry & Bright in red heat transfer vinyl.
I’m really happy with how they look with our other pillows, it’s cozy and just how I pictured it would be.
Christmas bedding designed by me. How ’bout that.
